[Ericsson announces a pilot project for its "Beewip" system, an "always-on" ip access system with speeds up to 3Mbps operating in the 3.5GHz band.]
Oslo -- Ericsson has signed a breakthrough contract with international operator Tele2 for delivery and installation of Ericsson's new Broadband Wireless
IP Access System - Beewip. Ericsson's Beewip system is a high performance broadband wireless IP access system intended for small and medium business customers.
It provides ''always on'' connection up to 3 Mbps for the end-user. The system offers excellent use of spectrum and high quality of services.
Installation of the system has already begun in Oslo and is expected to be completed during the spring. The system being installed in Oslo operates in the ITU standardized 3.5 GHz frequency band. Beewip is based on IP and open standards. This facilitates future development in terms of services, capacity and functionality. Beewip is the ideal solution for residential, small business and home office use, where unrestricted high-speed access to Internet and other data services are needed.
"Beewip is the ideal solution for our small and medium business customers," said Henrik Ringmar, managing director of Tele2 Norway. "Tele2 Norway is presently in the process of installing the system in Oslo and we
are planning to have the network in operation before June this year. This is a very interesting and important pilot project for Tele2."
